Sawyers—buzz saws that chase you down—can either be avoided with a quick jump or inhaled so Kirby can copy their cutter power.

Sawyer is an enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. It gives the Cutter Copy Ability when inhaled.

Physical Appearance

Sawyer is a buzz saw blade with a red center.

Sawyers have almost the exact same appearance as the Grinder enemies from Super Mario World and Super Mario Galaxy 2, and behave very similarly as well.

Sawyer will move back and forth, harming Kirby if he comes into contact with it.

In level 6-1, a giant Sawyer appears as a mid-boss. It will hide underground, then pop up and try to hit Kirby. Two Bronto Burts will appear in the area for Kirby to use as ammo against it.

Certain moves, such as Needle, Super Electric Energy Field and Drill can reach Giant Sawyer even while it's underground.


Sawyer's name is derived from the term referring to a person who saws wood. Sawyer is also an English surname, and its name could be a reference to the American fictional character Tom Sawyer.
